Identify and discuss the uses of different everyday materials
What materials are used for more than one thing (metal can be used for coins, cans, cars and table legs; wood can be used for matches, floors, and telegraph poles)
Different materials are used for the same thing (spoons can be made from plastic, wood, metal, but not glass; tables can be made from plastic, wood, metal, but not paper).
Compare the uses of everyday materials in and around the school with materials found in other places (at home, the journey to school, on visits, and in stories, rhymes and songs);
Observe, identify and classify the uses of different materials, and record observations.
Think about unusual and creative uses for everyday materials.
